Sentences Given to Seven in The Anti-Hanfstaengl Case
One Girl and Six Boys Fined 20 Dollars and Receive 6-Month Sentences
Although President Conant's recent plea for clemency won acquittal for two girls being tried for the anti-Hanfstaengl agitation last June, the other seven arrested at the same time and for the same offences were yesterday declared guilty of disturbing the peace and of speaking without permits.
For these offences, the seven persons--one girl and six boys--were fined $20 each and sentenced to six months of hard labor in the Middlesex House of Correction. Judge George James consoled the would-be patriots by his kindly, "I'm sorry to impose jail sentences."
